Question about Garden

2 Answers

My otherwise very good and fairy new Craftsman drill press has almost stopped working. While the motor is running and top pulley is turning, the chuck with drill bit will stop when it meets resistance. I checked if the pulley is loose, but it isn't. The belt is tight. I cannot see how I can take the assemly apart. Help me, please! This is an essential piece of equipment! Wytse Eldersloo, Netherlands

    Chuck is fine, bit is tight, but spindle that holds the chuck is no longer firmly attached to pulley at the top and the two can rotate independently.

    I have limited the problem to the chuck. The tapered end of the chuck is friction fitted in the spindle. This is OK, but the body of the chuck is now turning loosely on the tapered end, which it shouldn't. So I need to unfix the chuck from the spindle to check what is wrong with it or replace it. Any idea how to do that? I ried tapping it with a piece of wood (don't want t do damage!). Chuck = RJ-33-13L Thanks, Wytse Sikkema

Hi,
If you can find the model number of your drill press then I or you can go to www.ereplacementparts.com and find the parts that are broken or missing.

    Hi,
    To remove that it will take giving the check a very hard rap with a piece of wood long wise to the grain....
    You will probably have to give the chuck a whack and then turn it a bit and then keep whacking it to get it to release...

    they do not come out easy!!

I just bought an old enco 400005. How do you change/tighten the belts?


I'm not familiar with this particular model, but most drill presses have a similar design. The top cover should flip up, exposing the the pulleys and belts. At the back end of the machine where the motor is located, there should be one or two bolts that put tension on the motor, which in turn tightens the belts. When these bolts/nuts are loosened, it should put slack on the belt (s)., allowing the belt to be taken off. There may also be an tensioned idler arm/pulley which puts tension on the belt, such as an intermediate belt. That pulley can be moved to release tension as well. After new belt(s) is installed re-tighten the motor tensioning bolt/nut, allowing for some slack in the belt.

Drill will not rotate


Did you have to set the chuck into the spindle, or when you got the press, was the chuck already attached to the spindle? With the drill press I got (different brand), I had to set the chuck in the spindle and I put pressure on the chuck to set it in by placing a bit in the chuck and drilling in a piece of wood, which placed pressure on the chuck. If that's not the issue, check to see that the pulleys are turning ( flip the top open). Also check the tension of the pulleys (machine OFF) If there is nothing apparent or obviuosly not working, and if the press is new, yes, I would return it.

Will not start. motor hums


Turn the motor on then immediately help it by spinning the chuck. If it spins up to speed and runs OK, you have a bad start capacitor on the motor. If it still does not work you may have something jambed in the pulley/belt system on top or a shorted out motor.

I would like to know what inspections/maintenence should be performed on drill presses, say monthly and than yearly. I want my machine to stay in tip top shape.


Depending on how much the Drill Press is used will determine the maintenance required.
For light to moderate usage a monthly clean and lubrication of turning / sliding parts with a general inspection of drive belts and pulleys will be sufficient. Heavier usage will require more frequent cleaning, lubrication and inspection.
Yearly maintenance will be the same as the monthly check with possible replacement of the drive belt if showing signs of wear or deterioration such as cracking and checking bearings of drive motor for signs of wear or noisy operation. If possible, an electrical safety check should also be carried out at this time by a suitably qualified person.

The belt skips when walking or running


Take the motor hood off and set aside. Straddle the walk belt and set the speed to 3 or 4. Take one foot and step on the walkbelt hard. While doing this look at the pulley on the front roller. Does just the roller stop and the pulley keeps turning, does the roller and the pulley stop together or does just the walkbelt stop? If the walkbelt is the only thing to stop it is loose. If the pulley, roller and the walkbelt stop the motor belt is loose. If the pulley continues to turn and the roller and walkbelt stop your pulley is slipping on the front roller ( press fit). Two solutions: 1) replace the front roller or 2) pin the front roller to the pulley. Align the pulley roller to the motor pulley by tapping it into position. remove motor belt by loosing motor. Drill 1/8 hole through the pulley and roller. Take a larger drill bit and countersink the pulley hole so the head of a screw will be below the pulley grooves when installed. install the screw. If you mess it up -- turn the pulley and roller and try again. This is a permanent fix for this problem. You may have a little pulley wobble and that is OK.

I have a NordicTrack c2200. I find that the tread belt is not running smoothly while running on it. As I run, the belt temporarily stops during each running step, causing me to trip up. I tried to lube,...


There are a couple possibilities.
Remove the motor cover and run the machine.
Check the tension of the motor belt. It may need to be tightened. 2manyhobbies.jpg
Check that the pulley has not broken free from the front roller by stopping the walking belt when the machine is running. If the belt stops, but the motor and pulley keep turning, the pulley has broken free from the front roller.
If this is the case, with a drill and small drill bit, drill a hole through the pulley and roller on the inside edge of the pulley, between the ribs (not where the motor belt travels) and put a screw through the plastic into the metal roller.
Otherwise, change the roller.
Good Luck.

My model 137.21990 bench top drill press, the electric motor will turn if I take the belt off the pulley but when I slip the belt back on the spindle the motor stops turning and just hums!! I shut it off...


The motor is not necessarily shot. It may be that the motor can't handle the load. Even with the pulley and belt assembled your running at virtually "no load". The problem may be that when you attach the belt it pulls the motor "out of true verticle" which in turn causes the shaft to sieze inside the motor housing. Try making sure the motor is square and aligned exactly verticle and it is secured firmly to the base plate.

I am using a Delta 17-950L drill press that when I use a 2" Forster bit the spindle stops. drill press is new and have cut approximately 100 2" holes. thought that the bit was dull so I purchased a new bit...


This sounds like a belt tension problem. If the motor pulley is still spinning but the spindle pulley is stopped try increasing the tension on the belts.
If both the pulleys slow down or stop together, then try reducing the spindle speed to give it more torque under load.

1/3 hp drill press motor runs hot and very slow.


Look instead at the motor and drill post bearings. Remove the belt to see if the motor runs correctly with no load. If it still hums and gets hot, check that the motor itself turns freely (when off). If the motor seems to be ok, turn the driven pulley by hand--it should also turn freely. The capacitor is usually a starting assist, not running. To test, wrap a small rope several turns (when pulled must turn in the normal direction) around the small motor pulley and pull smartly while turning the motor on. If it now comes up to speed, the capacitor has lost capacitance. Electronic parts suppliers like Jameco or Mouser have such items.

The motor is working but the chuck head is not turning properly - it turns and then when you put pressure on it it stops. I have 3 makita drills and this is happening with all of them


First, check the lever on the top of the drill (high/ low lever speed) and make sure it is engaged in one of the positions. If it is in the middle it will cause your drill to stop. Otherwise, the gear box is gone and will need to replaced. The part # you need is #125-429-0 and it runs about $59.20.
Good luck
